Cucur Badak

Today's breakfast is light with just kuih-muih - banana bread which I made last night & Cucur Badak (usually we have something heavier & more filling like noodles, pasta, nasi lemak, burgers, etcs). That is because I was craving for this kuih which I used to eat almost everyday during my school life in the old days.

I made mine petit size, the same size which I used to buy from the makcik along the street near my house. The price of one Cucur Badak that time was only 5 cents.... (cheap eh...)!!

There is no accurate recipe necessary. Here is roughly how I made it:

FILLING:
1-2 cups Fresh grated coconut - finely grated (if coarse, pund it slightly) 
1-2 Red Chili*
2 Shallots*
1 Lemongrass* (* pounded) 
1 tsp Turmeric
Salt
- Mix all & stir fry until well mixed. Do not fry too long.

SKIN:
Sweet Potato - boiled & mashed
Add sufficient flour to form dough.

METHOD:
1. Take small portion of the dough & flatten.
Fill with coconut filling.
Wrap & place a shrimp on it (press hard into the skin otherwise the shrimp will come off it when fried).
Do for all remaining.

2. Deep fry until golden.
